- Thomas typically takes time to switch his equipment from the clubs that he has built plenty of trust with in tournament play to newer models. Sticking with his TS3 driver and 3-wood, Thomas is one of the few Titleist staffers on the PGA Tour to not put a TSi driver in play, while his 915 Fd 5-wood has been a feature of his bag for most of his career and was the club he used to setup birdie at the 16 hole on Sunday.
- The 27-year-old’s irons are the newest models in his bag, Thomas mixing Titleist’s blade 620 MB irons with a more forgiving T100 4-iron. The major champion used his iron setup to great affect this week, and most notably on Sunday, with Thomas hitting every green in regulation during the final round with the exception of the 18th hole. The lone missed green coming with a sand wedge in hand for his second shot.
- Thomas’ win is the eighth for Titleist golf balls on the PGA Tour, and like many of his fellow Tour players, the now 14-time PGA Tour winner is now using the 2021 version of the Pro V1x that was released earlier this year.
